“Truckers are what keeps this world moving.Moving freight from state to state with black smoke a rollin. Having a night to show appreciation to all the Truckers across the USA with a FREE night of entertainment & tie it in with a memory of my Dad is really something special, stated Springfield Raceway Springfield Raceway owner Jerry Hoffman.”

My Grandpa & Dad were both Independent Owner Operators pulling Hopper Bottoms buying & selling  grain across the country their entire life.” Grandpa had gas straight trucks years ago & his first diesel truck was a Red 1956 Diamond T. Grandpa bought that truck off of Gene Fleming Diamond T in Salina Kansas . Grandpa headed back to Gene Fleming in 1966 buying a new  in 1966  Diamond T. The 66 was the first model with a fiberglass hood . Dad drove the 66 for about a year & then bought er from my Grandpa …

My Dads was a new 1974 Peterbilt bought at Sioux City Peterbilt in Sioux City Iowa. Guess tha price ………. $24,000 yep $24,000 ….

My Grandpa & Dad probably had 20 or so different trucks through tha years & they wasn’t always new but I’ll tell ya one thing they both took very good care of their equipment keeping it clean & very well maintained….

Dad always told me “ You don’t always need new equipment, this old stuff he had just needed worked on a little more but it’ll still get the job done.”

Dad never got rid of his pride & joy …

He had stripped his ol 1952 Kenworth down to tha frame & was putting it back together & almost had er all done before he passed May 30 , 2022…

This Saturday June 1 ALL classes will have some added money in memory of the Springfield Raceway owner Jerry Hoffman’s Dad, Larry Hoffman who recently passed away  May 30, 2022 Dad Loved Trucks & Dad Loved Racing.

Thanks goes out to Bryan Martin of Four State Trucks & Roger Bartlett General Manager of the 
TLG-Peterbilt of Joplin.

Bryan Martin said “ He can’t count the times Larry was in the store looking around & the world really lost a true ol school trucker.”
